A visit to Stoke-on-Trent

A thriving mining centre,
(not to mention tableware),
Stoke was once the go-to place
for the flash and debonair.

But times have changed,
and so has Stoke:
the home of homely teapots
is now destitute and broke.

Now the folk of Stoke
must bear the bitter yoke
of being broke and spent
anent the gloomy Trent.
